It is our desire that the Church be a safe and holy place for all whom our ministry affects. Unfortunately, there have been times in the past when people in positions of trust and authority have caused harm to those who were seeking their help. In seeking to reduce and eliminate abuse or harm within our churches, the purpose of an effective screening and management program is two-fold:
"I expect that every parish and associated ministry in the Diocese of Niagara to comply with this policy for the good of The Church".
